He doesnt revisit old haunts and the images arent dominated by the geography of the region but Stavanger becomes a generous theatre for Rodlands exploration of the incongruous complexities both of his own mind and that of our culture. The centre of Norways oil industry, this Protestant coastal city has seen a tremendous economic growth since the late 1960s and Rodland utilizes a diverse array of pictorial languages to reflect on the paradoxes which arise with the addition of newfound wealth and materialism.
